Seborrhea: Selsun blue is a brand name shampoo for the treatment of seborrhea (dandruff).

Depending on your severity depends how often you may use it. If it is severe a dermatologist can rx a stronger shampoo if needed. ...Read more
Not exactly: For what people call "ringworm", the medical name is tinea corporis, and the treatment is lotriminaf (or a similar antifungal). The lotriminaf is over-the-counter. For tinea versicolor, which is different from tinea corporis, and looks more like lots of little spots on the oilier parts of the body (usually the trunk, neck, face), one can use the 2.5% selenium sulfide lotion or shampoo. ...Read more

Selsun Blue: Selsun blue contains selenium sulfide. Other shampoo that can treat this condition contains 1% ketoconazole (available over the counter) and 2% ketoconazole (available by prescription).

I think I have 2 ringworms on my scalp. Will washing with selsun blue get rid of them? It says it has 1% selenium sulfide as the active ingredient.
Unlikely: If it is true scalp ringworm, the topical lotions can reduce the surface growth but the problem is deeper.Scalp ringworm gets down into the root system of the hair and usually requires oral prescription meds that get there through the blood. IF your problem is really a ringworm, it is unlikely to go away with such treatment. ...Read more

I use selsun blue anti-dandruff shampoo with 1% selenium sulfide. I got some in my eyes, washed it out as best i could. Still burns? Will i go blind?
Won't blind you: It'll heal itself. You're almost a grown man and need to get fears that you must surely recognize as unrealistic under control. You list "anxiety" as a problem -- this would be a great time talk with a therapist or counselor about why you have such fears as this and what you can do to be happier as life goes on. ...Read more
Hi I have tinea versicolor around my stomach and it is bad. I tried selsun blue 1% selenium sulfide but it just made the pigmentation of my skin worse?
If a rash is Pityrosporum Folliculitis would Selsun selenium sulfide shampoo and an antifungal spray/cream help clear it up? What would work faster?
Try different stuff: Lots of options. Find out which works. I know of people sleeping painted blue with dandruff shampoo, and others who get fine control taking a ketoconazole 400 mg tablet before working up a sweat in the gym, once a month. I'm glad you got the diagnosis made -- it gets missed a lot. Lots of stuff works. You get to choose. Best wshes. ...Read more
